  • ARB’s drop eased temporarily at a key confluence area of $0.87.
  • Liquidity areas exist at $0.858 and $0.894.

Arbitrum [ARB] reversed recent gains after Bitcoin [BTC] dropped below $28k. The altcoin’s pullback hit a key confluence area and could offer ARB’s bull reprieve if BTC doesn’t post more losses.

ARB saw extra gains as BTC hit $28k, but the king coin’s losses afterward exposed the altcoin to sellers. ARB dropped over 10% to a confluence area of $0.85. 

Will the confluence zone stop the plunge?

The recent price rejection happened at the overhead hurdle and the daily bullish order block (OB) of $0.9329 – $0.9985 (red).

Nevertheless, the pullback hit a key confluence area at press time. The area is the previous breakout level of $0.87 during the extended rally in late September. In addition, the area includes a dynamic 50- Exponential Moving Average (EMA), yellow, and a price imbalance of $0.84 – $0.88 (white). 

So, if BTC doesn’t drop further, ARB could rebound from the level. The next bullish targets exist at $0.916, and the roadblock of $0.9329 – $0.9985 (red). A move to the second target could present a potential 8% gain for buyers. 

A drop below the confluence area will invalidate the bullish bias. 

Meanwhile, capital inflows into the ARB’s market were positive despite a slight drop in the past few days. But buyers’ influence could be confirmed if the Relative Strength Index (RSI) rebounds strongly at the 50 mark.

The above bullish bias is a risky move, given long positions were extremely discouraged at press time. According to Coinglass, ARB recorded over $50k liquidations of long positions compared to <$20k short positions in the past 12 hours before press time.

However, a bullish BTC could flip market sentiment in favor of the bulls. Hence, tracking BTC movement is crucial for risk mitigation and trade set-up optimization.
